Well hello there beautiful strangers! How’s tricks? First of all a thousand apologies for the distinct lack of goings on in my blog. I wish I could tell you this is because I have been crazy busy with all things Xmas-related whilst also participating in some light hearted snowball fights & snowman (angel) making. But truth is I’ve just been so crummy sucky bastardly ill again! Excuse my french. Bah humbug! Needless to say I haven’t been feeling the Xmas spirit lately, but with the help of some time off work recovering from nasty throat infection, plus a little gentle, on my knees, clawing the floor begging… “cough” my Dr for some antibiotics I’m slowly on the mend & can start feeling merry again! Still feeling a tad weak & out of sorts from not having slept for coughing the past few nights & I’m currently sporting a wonderful tres sexy beaver look right now, which I think could be the next big thing ya know? I certainly got a few looks when I headed out to see the Dr… ;) plus am a little doped up, so if this post doesn’t make much sense at all then sorry dolls. It probably didn’t help my condition by going out Friday night, but hey its Xmas right? And I thought dancing could be my remedy but I err obviously thought wrong… I’ve a coupla FOTD’s lined up that I need to get to posting but just bear with me lovelies :) Today I just wanted to fill you guys in on the manicure I had done last week, which I was very excited about (don’t ask me why, I just always get happy when someone does my nails for me, saving me the trouble…sad I know) but then it turned out to be the shortest lasting manicure in the history OF TIME! I wanted something a little jazzy, suitable for the work xmas do & other upcoming parties etc, so asked the lady at the salon to do black polish with a bit of white & silver nail art, simple yet elegant? And don’t get me wrong I was happy with how it turned out:
But the moment I got home, I started getting ready for the work Xmas party, happened to look down at my nails & found one of the nails had almost chipped half off!! Not impressed. I mean already?!? I hadn’t even done anything heavy duty, if you can call driving (with gloves on) getting changed & putting make up on heavy duty. Honestly, I was so disappointed :( I mean I did pay to have my nails done especially, is it too much to ask that they last at least one night? “Sigh” Oh well, I guess I won’t be venturing back to that salon in a hurry. So the moment I got the chance I took off the disappointing manicure, which might I add was a mission and a half to remove, I don’t think the polish used was good quality, & replaced it with a gorguz Xmassy colour. The colour I chose was from No.7 called Damson Dream & I love it! It’s a truly lovely, deep burgundy/purple shade that’s really warming & perfect for the season I think :)
